Radio Shack To Close 1,100 Stores

Radio Shack, the electronics retail store, has announced it will be closing 1,100 stores across the country. The move comes after a reported loss of $400 million last year.

Just last month, Radio Shack launched a comedic ad campaign that premiered during the Super Bowl, announcing a redesign of the store.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Bellini joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss the future of Radio Shack.
